Nerdist Podcast #65: NATHAN FILLION

Nathan Fillion (a fine, fine fellow) makes us coffee, talks about his Canadian improv roots, an unmade pilot he wrote, getting Joss Whedon on Castle, and whether or not he’s going to buy Firefly. Plus, fan tweets answered!!! A well-rounded audio programme (British spelling for uppity emphasis) indeed.

    After this podcast, I hold Nathan

    Fillion in the highest regards. He

    knows how to be a thoughtgul gentleman

    which is as nearly rare today as a

    middle mist red flower.

    By the way, a search engine for your

    podcasts would be brilliant.


  2. After listening to this podcast, Nick Fillion has my highest regards.  He knows how to be a thoughtful gentleman and that seems as rare, today, as  the middlemist red flower.

    By the way, a search engine for podcasts would be brilliant.


  3. Tara says:

    I make those “cookies” too. We call them bird nests!

  4. Reid says:

    A RIPPLE IN TIME!! You are talking about STAR WARS Episodes 7-9 and a Han Solo origin story which now with the acquisition of George Lucas by Mickey Mouse this looks to be happening. Chris, Jonah and Dave Matthews Mira the Gallifreyans of Star Wars episodiology…

  5. Were you guys prognosticating about STAR WARS episodes 7, 8 & 9? Let’s hope Nathan gets to play Han in some future movie. Excellent cast dudes.

  6. Frederick says:

    I’m sorry to say it, but I didn’t like this. I love Nathan (of course), but there was mostly chatting about nothing. This would have been entertaining to be there, but not listen to as a podcast.

    Also, while I also would have been excited to see him, come on, you don’t have to completely lick his ass.

  7. Tanya says:

    LOVED this podcast! I also love that you have all your episodes available for free DL via iTunes. Awesome job Chris, I heart Nathan. If you see him again tell him when I was pregnant I made a “Mals Love Child” t-shirt that covered my belly 🙂 He is so cool – squee!

  8. Miguel says:

    I know this is an older podcast, but I stumbled across something that, well, suits this just fine:

  9. Jae Young says:

    I’m wading my way through the Nerdist podcasts. So did Wil get an invite to sit in the corner, gibbering? In Nathan’s HOUSE, no less? I can’t imagine he was invited, as there was silence. Oh, wait. Gibbering makes it hard to speak, never mind.

  10. Jeffrey B says:

    Great show guys. I never get tired of listening to Mr. Fillion. He will always be my Captain.

  11. This may be the best podcast episode yet. Great job guys. I hope this becomes a regular event like the Mythbusters. It made a 2-hour drive home fly by. I wanted more!

  12. Josh from Europe says:

    Nathan f*****g yeah

  13. Calison6 says:

    Great job guys.

  14. Cornelius says:

    Hey guys,

    I’ve been listening to the Podcast for quite a while now and really enjoy it. I’m sure this has been suggested to you before but I really think you should get John Oliver on the Podcast. He’s extremely funny,he hosts his own Podcast “The Bugle” together with Any Zaltzmann and you could claim to have moved closer to you goal of having the entire cast of Community on your show!

    Keep up the good work!

  15. Jeremy says:

    fun interview! thanks

  16. Shirashima says:

    So yeah…. I freaking love this. One teeny tiny itsy bitsy problem though.

    Chaotic-good is most definitely not a class. It is an alignment.

    I know. Stupidest issue to have with a podcast ever. I still loved it. It just irked me because I was trying to do yoga on the wii fit while listening, and that threw my balance off hearing that.

    Otherwise… Hell its Hardwick and Fillion. They’re sexy beasts. And awesome. So. Yeah. That was all, I think. Other than that I hate that my interwebz only work sometimes. I would have been able to listen to this way sooner if it had.

  17. smartbunny says:

    Nathan’s cadence while speaking sounds exactly like Jimmy Pardo. “Oh, oh god no. That would be a terrible idea.”

    Knowing that he and CH both wear boxer briefs is making my vagina cry.
